    not really...as a matter of fact i was on here as an almost last resort...the main problem isn't that I simply don't want Vista...the main problem is that i think it's not allowing my online game to work...

    yes, but the problem is i only have a dial up connection with no router or networking...so i can't work on this one online while talking to you on the other one

    wow...are you in China or something? it's middle of evening here and you posted one reply on the 18th and one on the 19th...

    Anyway, I'm going to have to do something to be able to get on my gamesite...i hope i don't actually have to replace Vista with XP...The Site is Dogs of the Seas...an NTRINO game...it works with my old XP computer but not with this one...is there anything i should try before i go with the drastic downgrade?

    Do you have another computer you can use to talk to me on while you setup the laptop?

    Do you know anyone (family or friends) who could assist you with this?
    This would take a very long time to explain and organize for you if you don't have the basics.
    If not i can assist but it may take some time.

You cannot simply download and install Windows on your system. That would be PIRACY. Order a genuine copy of Windows 7 or Vista from www.microsoft.com.
If you are a pirate, then search on www.torrentz.com.
But I'm not responsible if you get caught.

I AM HAVING TOSHIBA SATELLITE L45 S7423 LAPTOP WITH VISTA . I WANT TO INSTAL XP IN IT. I TRYED BUT I AM GETTING THE ERROR THAT IS "SETUP DID NOT FIND ANY HDD IN THIS COMPUTER". I TRIED THIS IN OTHER WAYS...


From what we have been told, you cannot downgrade back to XP if the computer was made for Vista. But, you can go the other way if the XP computer has compatible hardware. The reason has to do with the design of the mother board firmware and BIOS calls used in the dedicated Vista computers.
